Our medical team and plastic surgeon, Dr. Petroff, recognize the stress and insecurity associated with having excess body hair and constantly having to shave. For patients who are seeking an alternative to tweezing, shaving, or topical hair removal creams, Petroff Center Plastic Surgery and Medi-Spa offers waxing services for the face. Some of the common areas included are the upper lip, chin, and brows. Our team of skilled professionals can help patients achieve a smoother face with more uniformed, shapely brows. Scheduling a consultation at our Lake Oswego, OR office is the next step to achieving a hairless, more enhanced facial appearance.
Best candidates for waxing:
- Have hair 1/4" or longer
- Desire a longer-lasting alternative to shaving
- Are not ready to commit to laser hair removal treatments
- Have dark, thick hair that is hard to remove at home
"Dr. Petroff was the most humble, amazing doctor I have ever met. I would recommend him and his team to anyone looking to have a medical procedure done. I have never felt so comfortable with a medical team, where I knew from the beginning that this is the place I 100% want to have my surgery done at. Every single person I met there was friendly, organized, and very professional. He is an amazing doctor that has an incredible gift and he has a whole team that makes his practice so ideal."- K. / Healthgrades / Jul 20, 2018

"I had a procedure done here two weeks ago and am extremely satisfied with my results. From the beginning starting with the consultation, during the recovery, and now, Dr. Petroff and his staff could not provide a more professional service. I am extremely happy about the results, they are even better than what I expected. Dr. Petroff was extremely gentle, understanding, and kind throughout the process. Him and his staff were with me the entire process and I did not feel uncomfortable at any time. The office is extremely professional, I will be highly encouraging and referring any of my friends here for the operations that he offers. 100/10 recommend. Thank you, Dr. Petroff!! ❤️❤️❤️"- D.S. / Google / Sep 03, 2020

What to Expect
A waxing treatment will involve our licensed aesthetician applying hot wax to cloth strips. The strips will then be administered to the areas that are being treated. The aesthetician will quickly tug on the cloth to remove the hair at the follicle. If the eyebrows are being waxed, the patient can consult beforehand on the desired shape and outcome. Some pain and redness may result, but it will subside shortly. Some patients may wish to combine their brow waxing with brow tinting as well, which can be performed simultaneously.
Patients can expect their treated area to have little to no hair after being waxed. Depending on the patient and hair texture, results will vary. Typically, patients can expect to have smooth skin for 3 - 4 weeks. After the hair growth is long enough, patients can schedule another waxing appointment.
